In what appears to be a pointless act of vandalism, the iconic gates at the entrance to Vivary Park were ruined during the early hours of this morning (9th February 2020).
Tone News was contacted by a member of the public who sent us the photo below:
The vandals cut through 9 pieces of metal to make their statement on the gates which have been there since May 1895.
CEO of Somerset West & Taunton Council looked disgusted when he visited the scene of the crime earlier and the incident is now being investigated by the police.
Did you see anything? Do you run a business close by that MIGHT have recorded footage on CCTV? If anyone has any information, please let the police know. Crime reference number: 5220032745
